I converted years ago but there is no mosque in town should I call before going to a new mosque or should I just go. Is there a special way of entering other than taking off you're shoes.

Just go brother.

Introduce yourself to the local Imam.

As salaamu alaikum

There isn't a special procedure as such. As you mentioned, remove your shoes. Feel free to go in and pray, recite the Quran and introduce yourself to anyone who isn't engaged in worship.

Depends.

If the mosque is Shia mosque then just go and pray no problem.

If it is a Sunni mosque then take permission of anyone from the management. They will mostly likely allow you but permission (ijaza) is necessary.

The place where prayers are performed must fulfil seven conditions.

The first condition: it must be permissible to use [i.e. it must not be usurped], based on obligatory precaution.

I think you're mistaken brother.  Masajid are open for prayer to all muslimeen. A masjid isnt sunni or shi'i, rather it is considered as the house of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى).
